Now this could definitely be a movie! Dark Autumn is fantastic action-
packed futuristic thriller that had me riveted for days. The energy was
kept very high throughout the book. Occasionally Clint Dunshee’s
characters performed seemingly super-human tasks, similar to James Bond
or Dirk Pitt. However, the reader is also shown their flaws and the
strength of intimate friendships – bonds that are so deep they are
willing to risk their lives for them. The abilities of these characters
are made more believable because of the incredibly difficult training
scenarios the author leads the reader through.

The theme is set in the future when space travel and space science is a
part of life. Earth is contacted from another planet when one of the
science probes is picked up by alien humans. As it turns out Earth is
only one of hundreds of planets with intelligent life, only some were
human. Many planets in the universe helped bring Earth’s technology up to
par in exchange for the planet’s rich agriculture and minerals. Most
planets worked on a good trade relation in relative peace, but the
trouble-making Marvonians were on the edge of acceptance. This planet
took it upon themselves to steal from Earth and attack their ships within
a few light years of Marvon.

The main characters of the book, Alan, Bill, Carrie, Julie and Angela are
all highly intelligent youth that are singled out for highly trained
positions. Despite their youth and inexperience, they were considered
Earth’s only chance to avoid a war with a technologically superior race.
Bounty hunters and sabotage plays a part in a deadly scavenger hunt while
plans are laid to rescue the hostages held by Marvonians. Earth has a
chance to destroy their image of being a young planet and elevate into
more sophisticated, honorable one that the other planets can respect and
hold trade with more readily.

In order to do this, Earth must play the game carefully and honorably -
at the same time the team must eliminate the dangerous problems with
Marvon and free the Earthling prisoners before it is too late.
I believe this book deserves the highest ratings and I would recommend it
to anyone, anytime, anywhere.
